If you’ve never tried breaking in a pair of Samurais and you love a form-fitting jean, you really should check out the Samurai 18 oz. S140SXJ-GRK “Goryokaku” Denim Slim Tapered Jeans. First of all, the fit’s not as slim as some other jeans out there – there’s a roomy thigh to be had here. Secondly, the Makoto fabric is one of Samurai’s most textured, which means you’re going to end up with an insane-looking jean down the road unlike any other.

If that’s not enough to sell you on these, peep these fine and subtle details that set Samurai apart from the rest of the MiJ pack: Grand indigo-dyed ultra slubby and neppy fabric milled in Japan to Samurai’s specifications, metal button fly (top/visible button is 22k gold plated!), white/blue/red selvedge ID, Lee-style acorn back pockets with tonal stitching that’ll reveal itself as the seat fades, Samurai branded rivets throughout, and heavyweight jacquard pocket bags on the inside.

Available for $340 at Corlection
